  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I like this expression of Wild Turkey a lot. A bang for your buck whiskey. The Rare Breed has more complexity, but this one is very drinkable.
    • Nose
      Soft vanilla and honey. New oak. Brown sugar. Molasses. Polished furniture. Beeswax. Strawberries as well. A little soap later on.
    • Taste
      Quite firm and powerful. Cedar wood. Pine resin. Toasted almonds. Nougat. Turkish Delight. Coconut. Bananas. Also orange peel.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dry. A little salmiac. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Spearmint. Well balanced.

    A nice, easy bourbon. Decent but lacks depth and complexity to stand out in the long long row of bourbons...
    • Nose
      81 81
      sweet, milk chocolate, some banana, caramel/toffee, a bit of polish
    • Taste
      82 82
      the nose continues, but the polish is diminished to make room for some honey and vanilla
    • Finish
      81 81
      rather sharp, medium long, ending on a sweet note with a nice touch of leather all the way in the back.

    Not a complex whiskey but a good one from the ever reliable Wild Turkey.
    • Nose
      Canned fruit, brasso brass cleaner. The nose isn't it's strongest point. There is sarsaparilla there and toffee apple.
    • Taste
      A mixed bag of fruit, red cherries, cranberry, Carmel, honey, quite smooth for the high strength. 
    • Finish
      The finish is a little short with some spice on the death.

    The nose is faint, there is real scrap between the sweet fruit side and the wood and whatever else there is.

    Not too good, like drinking something industrial, not for me.

  7. Pyromann scored this whisky 71 points Expert Senior

    To my taste very sharp and overwhelmed; She smells beautifully from the empty glass after five minutes
    • Nose
      A lot of alcoholic, caramel sweet, spicy, some flowers, overall pretty perfumed
    • Taste
      Sharp, the maize is predominant, typical for bourbon, artificial sweetness, as if it's a tough taste, the impact of a stick on concrete
    • Finish
      Artificially sweet, sharp, there is no overpass

  8. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose well vanilla. Caramel, a light touch of varnish, black pepper spices. Well balanced mouth with well integrated alcohol. Long final on spices (anise). Good.

  9. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      syrup, fruity, citrus - lemon, olive oil with herbs, honey and sweet corn
    • Taste
      a small bitter, iron, caramel and spices - cloves and pepper
    • Finish
      drying with chocolate, orang and bitter fruits

  10. tomy63 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Wild Turkey 101 Proof 50.5% : light amber color, moderately expressive nose, on wood, spices, some caramel and tobacco, very slightly vanilla. Mouth very woody, spicy, slightly vegetal with a side undergrowth (earth, humus) that bothers me a little, not too sweet or vanilla. Good length, very well integrated alcohol. Note: 81/100 .
